of my normal environment. so i think i could be educate thad way. they could see all the colleges in the area. my whole thing was to take them outside of their element and have them be educated in that way. >> we know education is important but the ref rage as it's being called, the nfl releasing a statement just a short time ago, nnamdi, they they're supporting the refs in this game with the packers, what do you think? come on. give it to me straight. >> you're not going to be fined. >> i am going to be fined. you don't know that, tamron. but anyway, no. obviously you never want it to be the play that costs one team or the other in a game. they weren't in the nfl last year, so this is all new to them. >> you're awfully forgiving. >> it's tough. >> you're awfully forgiving and i kind of know why because you've got a game against the giants and you don't want a ref against you before you start. >> yeah, you figured it out. >> troy aikman said this is a joke. we know your position as a quarterback. i said earlier that could have been you and the bad call against you. >> yeah, you're
says an employer has to provide a safe working environment, and if they don't provide a safe working environment -- which is really what the refs are there to do first and foremost, to keep the players safe -- then that union is empowered to watch over the resolution of that problem. and so far the coaches' and players' unions have held their tongues and not gotten involve with the this ref dispute. cheryl: you know, if you look at the amount of bets that were lost, especially on the packers' game, we're talking $150 million, granted some booking agencies are actually refunding because they say, look, the proof is what you saw on television. at the same time, though, do you this think that this is going to make the owners look bad because they're the ones that have so much of a financial stake in all this, they're the ones that are losing if their team loses based on a bad call? >> yeah. i think what're seeing now -- what we're seeing now is some tension among the owners because they realize they're damaging the nfl brand, and it's a brand that's been respected. it's roger goodell's

what moody's does in this environment, where actually we're discussing whether there will be intervention on the ecb? >> first of all, i think it is very relevant because this would bring spain's rating down to junk levels, which is the lowest of all three rating agencies, so it's a pretty big deal. and then the ecb program can't be implemented until spain actually says they want help. so it depends what happens first. i think it's going to be a slippery slope. finally, we've got the budget coming up tomorrow. there are more painful cuts, it could mean more pain for spain and more pain for the euro. >> there's a lot of tifs in tha. >> you could also argue that all the central banks have been ineffective in generating momentum in the markets right now. so even if they're persistently buying, it's really about risk appetite and sentiment. i don't think there's enough there. central banks could come in and make another announcement, but i think having just made these unprecedented announcements, that that could lead to firefighting. >> what are you targeting? >> lo
in this environment. how do you do it when we see the fundamentals are not keeping up with some of this market performance? >> it's a real challenge. the private client was tremendously traumatized by the financial crisis and spooked by technology glitches and continuing scandals in the marketplace. they still don't trust that if they put their money in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, it's going to grow in value over time. we've been encouraging them in as many ways as we can to move out of cash, move out of bonds, which they perceive as safe but have their own risks, into at least a benchmark waiting in equities. the problem is all through this year you've had overhanging uncertainty in the marketplace. first, u.s. economic growth, china, european sovereign debt crisis. those have been replaced right now by, as you've mentioned, fiscal cliff and debt ceiling negotiations. the investor is confused about where to go, but those investors who stayed in cash missed this rally that we've had this year. they shouldn't make that mistake again. >> are you saying don't stay in cash? you want to get on thi

think the environment's different. so we just can't take all that evidence and apply it blindly. i think it has diminishing returns. and frankly while we have some evidence that interest rates decline we don't know they were permanent. people argue it was transitory and we don't really directly observe the impact on employment and output. >> we did see some economic indicators today, i was talking to you before we came on camera because during the your speech we got the release of consumer confidence was up substantially in the month of september, in part on people feeling better about their job prospects. about higher stock prices. you know, the so-called wealth effect would help make people feel wealthier, invest, they would spend more. what do you make of that, and -- >> well, i mean, if consumer confidence went up, i think generally that's a good thing. that is usually a good indicator of things to come but, you know, i think we have to be careful about reading too much into the entrails here what sort of actually caused it or not. i do think we have to be careful, i am not a big fan

of security that's necessary in the environment we're in. i don't think there is anybody who in congress or the senate can articulate what this president's policy is, post gadhafi in libya he certainly didn't articulate it when he began the military action against him, and he certainly isn't now, leaving americans at risk. >> congressman turner, appreciate your time. senator isaacson as well. fran, it is, you know, to be fair to the administration and these are obviously two republican members of congress, i mean, it's not clear how much the u.s. was in control of the events. there were events happening around the world and happening on the ground in libya in the streets of egypt without the u.s. being in the forefront of it, and in many cases, the u.s. was reacting as often happens in foreign policy. the arab spring isn't something that necessarily the u.s. has control over. >> that said, our experience tells us whether it's the east africa embassy bombings or "u.s.s. cole" in places where that are ungoverned or poorly governed, yemen, libya, because of a weak central government, there
guess we have to remind americans of the kind of obstruction that was in the environment in washington. >> we went again and again and again to the floor to try and get infrastructure funding. and the republicans simply held it up. i mean, paul ryan was right in the center of it. and now you're going to make him vice president of the united states, in charge of opposing infrastructure building. it makes no sense. the country cannot work if we don't invest both in people's education and in the infrastructure, and romney has no record of it, and paul ryan has a record of being against it. so i don't see how anybody's going to vote for them. >> on the stage, the theatrics of it all and the semantics of it as well, mike rowe is up there talking about the very people that mitt romney was dissing behind closed doors at that fund-raiser. he can't say it about them, but maybe this guy can. maybe i'll hand the microphone to this guy, this guy named mike rowe, who wears a workman's hat and a sweatshirt and goes around and has pretty good visibility, maybe he can get up there and say that i reall
that is occurring there. at the same time is not providing the type of security that is necessary in the environment that we are in. i don't think there's anybody who in congress or the senate that can articulate what this president's policy is post moammar gadhafi and libya. he didn't articulate it when he began the military action and certainly isn't now leaving americans at risk. >> i think it is to be fair to the administration and there's obviously two republican members of congress. i mean, it's not clear how much the u.s. was in control of events. there were -- events happen around the world and events were happening in libya and the streets of egypt without the u.s. being in the forefront of it. and in many cases the u.s. was reacting, as often happens in foreign policy. the arab spring is not something the u.s. has control over. >> that's right. we have to understand that. that said, our experience tells us whether it is the bombings or the uss coal cole. in yemen, libya, because of a weak government. we know al qaeda has the wherewithal to take advantage of that and they look for safe have
will be in a different environment. but, you know, that said, i think the pressure is really on romney, the stakes are higher, and so i think that -- i don't know about expectations for how he's going to perform. i just know i would rather be obama because obama has a lead, status quo. romney has to go in there feeling like he has to land some punches. obama just has to get out alive. >> michelle, in your latest article for the daily beast, you say that the stakes could not be higher as mike was saying for mr. romney. in fact, you say that unless mr. romney hits it out of the park on wednesday, his dreams of sitting in the oval office could be, i'm quoting you, deader than disco. couldn't he come back in week two, much as people like me who love nothing more than hearing the ojs or the temptations even today. >> it's not mee who thinks that denver is a do or die situation. we're talking about republicans who have been out there saying he really has to nail this. people have been waiting for him to have his break-through moment. there are very few opportunities going forward. republican donors and
